their window as well and the leaders are bearing the brunt of the blame. plus, a house call. secretary sebelius sits down for apologies and caustic questions from congress. we will hear what the health insurers themselves think this is all headed. good morning from new york. happy halloween, it's thursday, october 31st. this is "the daily rundown." let's get to the first reads of the morning. it's halloween and boy, is it scary. the american public is mad at hell and they are not going to take it anymore. with the one-two punch and the health care debacle, they belt a devastating blow to washington and the parties and all their leaders. they describe the results as a shock wave. they will show how much recent events have sapped the american spirit. remember the expression? during the shut down, they pointed the finger at one house. the republicans and they spread to the doorstep of the white house and the public is increasingly losing confidence. 42% of americans approve of the president's job performance, an all time low for him. even when the president experienced a dip in his job rating, he
kathleen sebelius about the botched rollout at the federal insurance exchange. lawmakers want to know how such crippling technical problems went unnoticed before the website launch on october -- october the 1st. yesterday's blackout is being blamed on an outside contractor, tara mark, subsidiary of verizon. they said it had a network failure that impacted a number of clients including healthcare.gov. they committed to fixing the problem as soon as possible, end quote there. louisiana governor bobby jindal on "fox news sunday" said we don't need washington running health care and warns problems with the website are only the begining. >> i think they will eventually fix the website. let's remember this is the easy part. the real critical issue is when it comes time to schedule your grandmother's cancer surgery. this is symptom of a bigger problem. is this most incompetent or liberal administration in recent history. this issue and policy, to quote hillary clinton, what difference does it make? jenna: strong words from the governor there. california congressman javier becerra, wants to know

to the contractors last week and we have kathleen sebelius in the hot seat this week. what are the first questions that you want to ask of the secretary? >> well, what i'd like to know from the secretary is, number one, why did she repeatedly over time tell us that by october 1st, that website was going to be ready to go, that every american would be able to come on. i also want to understand who did what when. who was calling the shots? why was this process interrupted? you know, things like the shop and browse portion were turned off. there are so many questions. but now i'd also like to know from kathleen sebelius how am i going to respond. i am getting thousands of requests from -- reaching out to my office telling me that their health care premiums are going up and that their health care plan that they have is being cancelled. how do i respond to that. those are the questions i'd like to know. >> have you asked anyone in north carolina why the state didn't start its own exchange, knowing that there was going to be a 3.5% increase on all those people in your home state of north carolina that w

't >> connectivity issue is a problem. on saturday kathleen sebelius was bragging how well the program was working and how it can perform quick calculations. none of those calculations were working yesterday during the shutdown. blaming parties going on because they were blaming the contractor, a part of verizon, for this issue. but all the information hubs, that hub holds your social -- nothing important -- your financial information. that is now being looked at as being exposed potentially. >> you're talking about exposure. the big question is, kathleen sebelius is going to have to answer she thought a set of questions. now she is going to have to answer hub questions. then she will have to answer security questions this week. the high-ranking guy with the f.b.i., representative mike rogers, now in charge of security in the house says i've got a problem with the security on healthcare.gov. >> it was very clear to me in the hearing that they do not have an overarching solid cyber security plan to prevent the loss of private information. i am even more concerned today than i was even last week. i
after secretary sebelius assured reporters the on line experience is getting better. it plays in the hands of the democrats that want the administration to delay the buying of insurance for individuals. west democrat manchin would like to delay it a year. and the oklahoma senator coburn wants to know who is responsible. >> where is that competency level? the government is good at a lot of things and we should have government in some things and we ought to demand excellence and expertise. >> reporter: they traced the latest computer problem to verizon that had a network failure. the president's fix it guy said it will be fully functional by the next month. and hundreds of thousands of people are sent cancellation notice. but blue cross subscribers said theirs are offered better plans start nothing january. the affordable care act requires matern ternity and pediatric dent will care. the presidentoused to say if you like your health care you can keep. it they admit that may not be true for everybody. snshg the vast majority of people are coping the plans. people who are uninsure
. meantime, embattled health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius will go before the senate finance committee next week to answer more questions. i'm jami colby and i'll be back at the top of the on hour for america's news headquarters. >>> it's hard to believe, but barbara walters is in her final season at "the view." first at nbc's "today show." then at abc, co-host of 2020 and countless special and a woman who has interviewed presidents and prime ministers and every celebrity on the planet just about. but i think i've detected a change in tone in her highly popular daytime show, so i began with that when i visited the manhattan offices of "the view." barbara walters, thank you for letting us into your luxurious dressing room. >> with no window, yeah. >> nice curtains. >> we cover everything up with curtains. >> during the national melodrama over the national shutdown, obama care, i didn't see much of that on "the view." has washington gotten too boring? >> "the view" is a daytime show. a lot of people get their news from "the view," but it's supposed to be entertaining, upbeat.
sebelius testifies again this week. in the meantime, there is just so much to talk about. martha: good morning, happy monday, everybody. i am martha mccallum. top democrat saying it may be time to put this thing on hold as republicans continue to say they believe we should cut our losses and shut it down. >> lets have a timeout on this, mr. president. you call a timeout on this. convene a group of bipartisan leaders to address health care concerns in this country because this is not working. bill: peter ducey is working today live in washington. how well is the website working? peter: is no longer a 1 24 hours per day website. it will be off-line at least from 1:00 a.m. until 5:00 a.m. every day. new members show consumers are not the only ones having problems with healthcare.gov. navigators who are there to make the process easier are turning away from the site as well. here's a quote from an octobe october 11 document. navigators are seeing people very frustrated and walking away so they are turning to paper applications to protect their reputations as people in the community who can

too. so we thank ryan for going in the field. according to kathleen sebelius, it's not her fault she can't enroll in medicare, that's just the way the law is written. >> if it was possible for you to forego your government insurance -- >> i don't -- >> it's a yes or no question. >> if you had affordable -- if you can, will you? that's a yes or no. if you can, will you? >> i will take a look at it. >> that's not an answer. >> if she really wants to go under the obama care exchanges, of course she can. you know what? she doesn't want to and that's why he isn't. neither is president obama and his family. when the cook won't eat what comes out of the kitchen, that tells me something might be wrong with what's on the plate. the reason that americans don't want it -- >> mike doyle says that obama care will save him him money because he won't have to pay for his son's health care any more. his son is a full-grown man. >> my kid is 33 years old. he is eligible for a subsidy. we browsed that sight, and he can get coverage for half of what he is paying now and that's good news for us because i
the administration will try its on reboot. sebelius will testify wednesday and also wednesday, president obama takes obama care on the road to massachusetts, a state that's been running insurance exchanges for half a decade. mass is sets the precedent that many in healthcare.gov enrollment will spike the closer we get to the deadline. the irs says 330,000 americans are far enough into the process to find out how big of a subsidy they'll receive. a good indicator of how many people are signing up. but the site faced another glitch. data system that verifies applicant information crashed. 36 states using federal exchanges and the 14 states that run their own. >> friend of the show josh barrow is back, editor of business insider, he is a boston guy. perhaps the answer came from what the healthcare.gov website needs is a pep talk from david ortiz, referring to nice pep talk that big papi was giving the guys in the dugout in the game that led to that winning the game. part of the problem is there's a big project giving the pep talk, part of the problem is we have folks in the democratic party that say we
you care whether or not it works? today, secretary of health and human services kathleen sebelius testified before a republican house committee on problems with the rollout of the health care law. one republican congressman told her she was not in kansas anymore. another told her, he thought he saw her riding her bike in kansas when she was a child. it was a weird hearing. at one point, the secretary just said whatever. in the middle of an answer at a particularly badgering nonsense moment with a republican member of congress. the republican plan on health care was to pretend like it was not the law. then it was to shut down the government to demand that it not be the law. now the plan is maybe sort of trying to make it better. at least demanding that it be better and demanding answers for why it is not better already. when the problems with obama care start to be resolved as they were in massachusetts when that state's law rolled into effect over a period of months and years, when the problems with this nationally start to settle out and it starts to work, then what should we exp
, guess what? >> who? >> kathleen sebelius. >> is that right? >> i got the grim reaper kind of thing going. i got the gray wig. it's going it look great. >> take some pictures. we will share them next week in the neighborhood. >> laura ingraham. great letters tonight. some of you very teed off. then ms. megyn kelly on another school district trying to ban christmas songs for the kids. why are they doing that? we hope you stay tuned to those reports. no matter how busy your morning you can always do something better for yourself. and better is so easy with benefiber. fiber that's taste-free, grit-free and dissolves completely. so you can feel free to add it to anything. and feel better about doing it. better it with benefiber. maestro of project management. baron of the build-out. you need a permit... to be this awesome. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle... and go. you can even take a full-size or above, and still pay the mid-size price.
